Q&A with Siena M. Vessa, Ralston Valley High School

Posted

During my four years of high school, I was involved with the student government, choir, track and field, swim and dive, cheerleading, gymnastics, lacrosse and the National Honors Society. I plan on attending Metropolitan State University.

What profession or career do you want to pursue? Why?

I want to pursue a career in law enforcement, being a K-9 handler. Ever since I was little I knew I wanted to do something with dogs! When my father became a K-9 bomb dog handler, I knew this is what I wanted to do. Not only do I get to have a dog at work but being an officer, you are a servant to your community to serve and protect in every way possible. While in student government, we did a lot of volunteer work and the more I did I saw how little things can make an impact in someone else’s life. I want to carry that on.

What do you hope to accomplish in life?

I hope to accomplish my goals as an officer and later on have my own K-9 training facility and be distributor of K-9 for the different military and law enforcement branches. But besides the whole career idea, I want to be a person that makes an impact on at least one person a day. I’m not looking to change the world but I am looking and hoping to change a world. Being able to know that I made an impact, difference or change in just one person’s day/world, by doing something small and overlooked, I will feel accomplished.

If I could do anything, it would be to ...

Share the importance of respect. I believe in today’s time and age a lot of people either 1) lost/forgot what respect is, 2) they don’t know what it is, or 3) they don’t care about it. Everyone deserves respect no matter how one feels about another. Everyone has different views, everyone has different morals, everyone is different. But everyone earns respect.
